Cybercriminals are taking advantage of the current state of affairs. We are seeing a rise in spear-phishing attempts, malware embedded PDFs, Word documents, and ransomware – all targeting unprotected remote users.
Here’s a quick checklist to make sure the right cybersecurity measures are in place for remote users:
Do you have a secure VPN set up?
Do all your company-issued devices have next-gen AV/Endpoint protection?
Are employees (or you) using personal laptops/desktops, and do these devices have AV/Endpoint protection?
Email security – do you have the right email security solution in place to handle advanced spear-phishing and credential compromise attacks?
Do not click on attachments or links from someone you do not know, always hover your mouse over the senders’ name/domain.
